NBA 2K24 Best Builds for your MyPLAYER
After giving fans a jampacked set of storylines and quests last year, NBA 2K24 MyCAREER has significantly streamlined with more focus than ever on pure gameplay and how you can make your MyPLAYER excel. That all begins with having the right build.
NBA 2K24 builds on the surface aren't too different from the complex builds seen in NBA 2K23 and before, but changes like badge progression can make getting the right start even more necessary. Badge progression is directly linked to the way you play in each game this year, so you'll want to really focus on skills and badges you'll actually use.
This also means you need to pick the right build, and the good news is that some of the best builds in NBA 2K24 are available right out of the gate without having to tinker with every detail. Custom builds and secret replica builds will continue to be identified as top options emerge in the coming weeks, but the best template builds are where everyone will be starting in NBA 2K24 MyCAREER.

How to max out a 99 OVR build in MyCAREER
One benefit of the new NBA 2K24 template builds is that all of them have the potential to be powered up to 99 OVR, but that's no easy task in MyCAREER. You'll need a significant amount of VC to power up all the needed attributes and push your NBA 2K24 ratings towards the sky.
However, you won't be able to hit 99 OVR right out of the gate even if you back the dumptruck up and unload a 700,000 VC bundle onto your account. You'll need to first get your MyPLAYER beefed up to 90 OVR, and then find Ronnie 2K to setup the Rebirth quest.
With Rebirth activated, you'll score a few rewards and most importantly gain the ability to take away that 90 OVR rating cap. Once this is completed, players should be able to max their MyPLAYER all the way to 99 OVR assuming your account is flush with VC.
